I recommended this to my best friend who loved it as much as I did. Laugh out loud funny, narrated with the right amount of contempt or love for the characters to make them sound thoroughly plausible, plenty of background to each character so you knew what motivated them, and a farcical hilarious story with a message about conservation - not an easy gig!
The characters, especially Skink. The way they are drawn so you know all about their history. They're mostly multidimensional like most human beings. Also the book is very, very funny!
He made everyone sound exactly like you'd expect them to, from sleazy lobbyist Stoat, to the angry conservationist Twilly Spree, and the beautiful but deluded Desi.
Without spoiling the story I'd say the animals stuff.
Read it and laugh!
